The Boathouse is a delightful, detached, very romantic, waterside holiday cottage on Cornwall stands on its own private quay, surrounded on all three sides by with the wide River Tamar on the last leg of its journey to the sea. Unsurprisingly, all rooms in The Boathouse enjoy wide-ranging riverside and rural views. This is indeed a heavenly spot for a peaceful holiday in idyllic surroundings on the Cornish side of the Tamar in the sleepy village of Cargreen with a restaurant and pub within walking distance.
Within a short drive lie sandy beaches, and famous Cornish attractions such as The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, several grand National Trust Estates and the St Mellion Golf & Country Club.
Rooms and facilities in The Boathouse comprise:
A living room with ample space for sofas (one a double sofa bed) and arm chairs for 8, flatcreeen TV, DVD/CD player and warmed on cooler days by a flame effect fire creating a cozy glow. The riverside patio can be accessed by French Windows from the lounge providing fine ‘wide-angle’ views of the Tamar and surrounding countryside.
On cooler days, you can still enjoy the views from the beautiful conservatory which leads off the lounge.

WHAT A PERFECT GEM! by Octobere 2016 on May 3rd 2017
We have just returned back from a wonderful week spent at the Boathouse in Cargreen and this is by far the best holiday cottage that we have ever stayed at. It is extremely difficult to decide what was the best feature of this particular accommodation, the cottage itself or the spectacular views of the river as both were just so perfect. Out of all of the cottages that we have stayed over the years in the UK this is the only one that we all looked forward to going back to at the end of the day as it felt so much like a home. Despite the fact that the nearest shop and pub were over 3 miles away this did not detract from the total enjoyment of staying in this tranquil location. What a gem!
